Hi Everyone,

Just a quick mid-week email (these don't happen often at all so don't worry), because a new event has been finalised before our next newsletter is due to go out.

If you have picked up one of our "Learn to Code" flyers, you will notice that as well as our weekly events on a Saturday, we are also doing 3 joint events with Oxford Entrepreneurs (the first of which is also this Saturday). These events are workshops where we will be teaching the basics of front-end web development.

Here are the details of all events this Saturday:

About Learn to Code

During these events, there will be a mixture of interactive workshops and talks. We will be teaching you the basics of programming using Python. These events are good if you have zero coding experience, but they are also valuable if you already have started coding and would like to better your skills. We also welcome people who already have good coding experience as the more volunteers the better!

These events are always followed by our weekly Geek Night.

You can find out more information about this series of events over at ox.compsoc.net/learn

We also have a facebook group for discussion if you are taking part in this course: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCode

...and a group for those who would like to volunteer: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCodeHelpers
